    CBS
    In similar fashion to their film equivalent (The Academy Awards), The Grammys is an awards show that honors the achievements of the members of the professional music recording industry through a voting system. The members of the Recording Academy vote on who they think is most deserving of an award in 108 categories as specified by the academy. Each year the awards are presented during a live telecast that was begun in 1971 by ABC, but has since been televised by CBS after they bought it in 1973. They were initially known as the Gramophone Awards this is because the trophy itself is a golden gramophone but later they became the Grammys.moreless

With his easy manner and popular music, Glen won quite a TV following leading to his own CBS series, "The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour". Glen had two hit songs on the charts when he got the series, they were "Wichita Lineman" and "Galveston". The series was filled with comedy, solos, and a very easy-going down-home friendly manner which endeared him to the masses. Composer-singer John Hartford wrote the theme song for the series, which was "Gentle On My Mind" and made frequent appearances throughout the show's run.moreless

    Match Game '73

    Match Game '73

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1979)
    This is the classic edition of the ultimate classic game show that most people came to know and love. Originally intended to be simply an expanded CBS-TV remake of the popular 1962-1969 NBC-TV game show called The Star-Studded Big Money MATCH GAME 73 (and it's annual updates) soon it's grown into a bonafide, no-holds-barred comedy fest, full of innuendos, double-entendres, pouting celebrities and much more debuts including one as the show's return on June 25-29, 1973 on CBS-TV. Host Gene Rayburn played straight man to the antics of the 6-star panel but frequently aided the fun. The game itself as straightforward. 2 contestants and that includes a returning champion are both competed. The challenger chose 1 of the questions (marked "A" & "B") in 2 Rounds (marked "1" & "2") for which Rayburn read the question. While the questions were rather pedestrian early in the run (e.g., "Name a foreign car"), the questions quickly grew wild and wacky. Frequently, the questions involved a recurring list of characters such as Dumb Donald, Weird Willie and Old Man Periwinkle (the latter brilliantly portrayed by Rayburn); celebrities, politicians and news events of the time are also the butt of many of the questions. For example: "Wendy the waitress really likes it if you give her good tips. Give her a $10 bill, she'll put a sliced cherry in your drink. Don't tip her and she'll put in a _____." It's that really a blanked answer to the question and all the six(6) celebrities separately write their own answers on it's own light blue index cards. The Challenger and Later The Champion then asked for his/her answer. One by one, Rayburn – who frequently critiqued the contestant's answer (he or she might say "cherry bomb" or "cyanide," which would be the definitive answer, while "dirt" would be a rotten answer) – then the audience criticized each celebrity for his or her answer to match it. The Challenger and Later The Champion scored 1 Match. 2 Rounds are played with the challenger going 1st in the second round of questions (or the champion if the challenger matched all 6 stars); celebrities who matched a Challenger, The Champion or Both Matched Separately in the 1st round whom don't played for the 2nd & Last Round question for the Challenger and Later The Champion. The Person in the lead (Possible Total of 6 Matches) after 2 Rounds wins the game and collects $100 and played the Big Money SUPER MATCH. A Tie-Breaker Game is played if necessary (marked "TIE") with the same gameplay like as before. If the tie isn't broken after two(2) Tie-Breaker Games, then a sudden-death fill-in-the-blank tiebreaker is played. A fill-in-the-blank phrase (e.g., _____ Bunny) is shown; The Challenger & The Champion are write their response and the celebrities were called from Gene Rayburn for their answers. The 1st Person to match wins the game. In the highly unlikely event that both The Challenger & The Champion are provided to Match nor There's still No Match, then (after a typical Rayburn comment like, "Gee, we're really doing well, aren't we?") The sudden-death Tie-Breaker is played again until There's a MATCH. The sudden-death format is used right away for ties in the weekly syndicated MATCH GAME pm (because of time constraints) that started after the 1975-1976 season only regulars Richard Dawson, Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly are played. The Super Match is played in 2 parts. In the 1st part (dubbed The Audience Match), Rayburn read a fill-in-the-blank phrase question in which had been given to a previous studio audience of 100 people (e.g., Cookie ______). The contestant asked 3 celebrities 1 At a time for suggested answers after which he or she could choose 1 of 3 Answers made by 3 Different Stars or Come up with 1 of his or her own. The 3 Top answers are all listed with the No. 3 choice worth $100, the 2nd-Most popular worth $250 and the Top choice worth $500. If the champion matched 1 of the top 3 answers, he/she wins the cash award and played The Head-to-Head Match for 10 times the cash award (equals ergo: $1000, $2500 or $5000). The Champion choose 1 celebrity, who's given an fill-in-the-blank phrase question as before. If there's an exact match from the star, the champion wins the Big Money. Even if the champion didn't match with the star, the champion kept his/her Audience Match winnings and faced a new challenger. Players returned until defeated or surpassing CBS-TV's $25,000 winnings limit (done just once in 1979 on 1 of these 10 unaired shows after "MATCH GAME 79" cancelled on CBS-TV). Richard Dawson is initially the only regular MATCH GAME 73-78 celebrity; Charles Nelson Reilly and Brett Somers became regulars in September 1973. Dawson is far and away the most popular Head-to-Head Match celebrity partner (one history of the show reported he's responsibile for greater than $1 Million in the champion's winnings). In 1976 as the show then called MATCH GAME 76 Dawson parlayed his success in the highly-successful ABC-TV run of "THE FAMILY FEUD." On June 28, 1978...The Star Wheel is added to the SUPER MATCH on MATCH GAME 78 which the champion spins to determine his or her celebrity partner. If the wheel stopped on certain areas of the wheel called the gold star area (designated "DOUBLE"), the champion played for 20 times their 1 of the 3 Cash awards (up to $10,000 on the CBS-TV show & The New MATCH GAME; $20,000 on MATCH GAME pm); otherwise, they played for their regular jackpot. Some fans of the show believe the addition of the Star Wheel that hastened Dawson's departure from the show on August 23, 1978 and though that's purely speculation. MATCH GAME 73 as fans came to know, had many classic moments during its 7 Season run on CBS-TV (too many to list here). The show also spawned a successful syndicated entry (the once-a-week MATCH GAME pm, which offered even higher cash prizes). After the CBS-TV show (and then called MATCH GAME 79) cancelled on April 20, 1979. 5 Months later it continued its life as the new 5-day/night-a-week entry as "The New MATCH GAME" Released on September 10-14, 1979 that series continued through September 10, 1982. A short-lived pairing with The Hollywood Squares in 1983-1984 on NBC-TV plus 2 self-contained revivals (ABC-TV in 1990-1991 and Syndicated TV in 1998-1999), soon followed. None managed to recapture the audience (nor particularly in the latter edition, the magic) of the one-of-a-kind original. Reruns of the classic MATCH GAME 73-79 have perpetually been among the highest-rated shows on Game Show Network (now GSN).

    CBS (ended 1974)
    After the original run of Scooby-Doo Where Are You (1969-70), Hanna-Barbera continued the success of the great dane and his mystery-solving sidekicks Shaggy, Daphne, Fred, and Velma in their first spinoff series The New Scooby-Doo Movies which debuted about two years later on the CBS Saturday morning schedule. The formula remained the same as they investigated several mysteries, resulting in the capture and unmasking of a ghost or monster as a villain in disguise making efforts to carry out some nefarious plot. However, there were two significant differences. First, the episodes were double the length of the original series (about 45 minutes without commercials), and second, the gang was joined by a number of guest stars, from real life celebrities like Sonny and Cher, Jonathan Winters, and Jerry Reed, to fictional characters like the Addams Family, and even crossovers with characters from other H-B series, including Jeannie, Josie and the P u s s y cats, and Speed Buggy. The majority of episodes in this series had two titles. The official titles are the ones primarily listed here at TV.com. The secondary titles are usually seen as "Scooby-Doo Meets _____________", which will be listed in episode notes. But there were exceptions for those episodes in which certain stars appeared multiple times, as the episodes featuring the Three Stooges, Batman and Robin, Don Knotts, and the Harlem Globetrotters only had one title. Overall, this was a fun and entertaining series and it was pretty cool to see Scooby and the gang interact with favorite stars from the old era. From the real life celebrities, to superheroes, and even their fellow H-B stars, the Scooby gang was always bound to have a grand adventure working alongside guest stars traveling the country and solving mysteries. The New Scooby-Doo Movies is among several Hanna-Barbera series that air every now and then on Boomerang from Cartoon Network. Check your local listings.moreless

    Maude was one of the most popular shows during the 70s. Not only was it one of the most popular, it was one of the most controversial. The show was real and told it like it is - much like the show that first introduced us to Maude, All in the Family.

    Maude was outspoken and stong-willed... which lead her to many interesting and controversial situations. Maude wasted no time becoming one of the most controversial shows ever when she, at age 47, became pregnant and decided to get an abortion (the first show to ever have the lead character get an abortion). By the end of the show Maude was heading to Congress, ready to take on a new world. And it seemed we would get to see Congresswoman Maude, but Bea Arthur decided to leave the show. Maude remains as part of TV history and has since become a true c.

    Others in the cast include, Maude's fourth husband, Walter, and her divorced daughter, Carol from her first marriage. Arthur was the next door neighbor who later married Maude's best friend, Vivian and Phillip was Carol's son.

    Maude had a spin-off, Good Times, which centered around the life of the Findlay housekeeper, Florida. Mrs. Naugatuck become the new housekeeper in 1974. She would later marry her boyfriend, Bert Beasley.

    The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1974)
    When The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour debuted on CBS the first day of August in 1971 as a five-week summer replacement series, it was an immediate ratings hit. The bright musical arrangements interspersed with humorous on-stage bickering from the husband and wife team scored big in the lounges they were performing in, and this translated well into television. Based on the success of the summer show, The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour was back on the air in December of 1971, replacing The Chicago Teddy Bears Friday nights at 8:00. A string of hit records and concert tours brought in big bucks. By the fall of 1972, in its Wednesday night at 8:00 time slot, the show became a consistent top-ten winner. The program featured regulars Terri Garr, Freeman King, Peter Cullen, Billy Van, Murray Langston (later the 'Unknown Comic'), Ted Zeigler, and Chastity Bono, the couple's toddler. The series was famous for the outlandish outfits designed by Bob Mackie, (who did the costumes for Cher only, as he was under contract to Carol Burnett for her entire show) and catchy musical numbers scored by Billy Barnes. Sadly, all was not happy in Sonny and Cher land. By 1973, the tabloids were ripe with stories of their offstage shouting matches, canceled gigs (including a last minute cancellation in Vegas, filled by Johnny Carson), and even reports of Cher sporting a black eye. Just as Sonny and Cher's recording career was coming to an end, Cher began charting top-ten solo records. Tensions increased when Cher moved out of the couple's home. Truth was, they had been living separate lives for some time in their Bel Air mansion. With the TV show finishing 7th for the 1973-74 season, Sonny Bono filed for divorce; 58 hours later on February 22, 1974, the final episode of 'The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour' was taped. CBS had no choice but cancel one of their biggest hits when it became apparent that the duo couldn't work together any longer. Cher wanted a solo career. 'The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour' left the air May 29, 1974 when one television show was split into two.moreless

The series presented popular animated shorts which were originally produced for the silver screen, where they would appear right before a major motion picture, but here they were introduced by new segments as well as new title cards not shown in the original theatrical versions. Also included were Road Runner cartoons originally shown on the The Road Runner Show. Many people who grew up watching this show will most likely remember it by the opening theme "This Is It" performed by Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck which was shown in black & white when it was created for The Bugs Bunny Show but then shown in color and remodified specifically for this Saturday morning series.
